We support people who are having falls or problems with their balance.
Our Falls and Balance Service (FABS) provides a specialist assessment service for people who are having falls or balance-related problems. The service is particularly useful for people who are not sure why they are having falls.
We have a team of health professionals with expert knowledge and experience in falls, balance and mobility:
- Occupational therapists
We provide the following services:
- Diagnose the reason for falls
- Provide education and support to develop strategies for people to manage in their home
- Refer people to other health services for ongoing management and treatment if required
GP’s, specialists, family, carers, case managers and patients can contact us directly to access our services.
